Milongas are local neighborhood clubs, open 365 days a year, where the Porteños (Buenos Aires locals) gather together to dance tango. Each milonga has its own characteristics which makes it unique.

Your guide will pick you up at your hotel to go to a milonga, where you'll join a shared dancing lesson with an expert to learn the basics of tango. The guide will also explain the history, codes and characteristics of tango so that you can better understand its dynamics and interact with the locals. After that you'll be able to practice what you learned, mixed with the Porteños, and then a typical tango orchestra will perform live. You'll enjoy the vibe of the music while you dance, or simply watch the Porteños. Once it's over, guides will take you back to your hotel with the certainty that it will be a night you'll remember forever.

It has long been a dream of mine to dance tango in Buenos Aires and I achieved it if only briefly on this trip. We had an hour’s lesson in a dance studio and then on to a milonga. This really was a tango night with the locals - the only tourists were those in our group - and we loved it. Our guide was excellent - as well as dancing we chatted all evening about Argentina and as well as being a great dance teacher she was informative and fun. Highly recommended

Superb evening, entertaining, several wines and dishes to taste in addition to the main meal (excellent steak!)! Fun to make our own empenadas in the early evening too! Perfect animation with info on typical Argentine stuff! The hostesses were very friendly, funny, smiling, generous! Everything was delicious! Great Valentine's gift from me to me! :)) I recommend +++! You will be delighted with your evening!

Our instructor Martin was wonderful and we learned so much from this session! It was great that it was offered in two locations so we could take the class close to where we were staying.

Fabulous Evening of Food and Fun!

The staff (Elis, Gabby and Barbara) is wonderful and funny! We learned the history of local wine and food, had a competition, and met fun people. It was great, I recommend it highly.

We had booked a private lesson. That was ideal because our current dance status with regard to Tango Argentino could be dealt with and built up.
